very cool blue colour its a bit too big for my pocket though might look like somthing else............
this looks like a swimming pool and i cannot swim,any idea where my left sock is i think i left it in a bag.
The mistake is found in the explanation.
NOT SUPPORT GSM!!!
Network UMTS / GSM 900 / GSM 1800 とありますが、W-CDMA(UMTS)だけですよ。
ONLY YMTS! NOT GSM.
Skater42 if you hsve laptop or an TFT-monitor on your pc try changing the color on it from true color (16.7million colors) to high color (65000 colors) and if you can see the difference there is something wrong with your monitor. Everybody knows the human eye can see up to 12 million colors or so but we are talking about a screen limited by pixels here not real life.
the Japanese culture is changing...
btw this phone won't come out in Europe. If you want something better than this and that will come out in Europe, check the Sharp 902 out.
If you know a bit of the Japanese culture, then you should understand that Japanese people keep the best product for local user & never export officially them.
The phone comes in 3 colours..so do not worry about the blue version too much :)
a m.f. super fone! why tha japanese mobile fones work properly just in.....Japan? the only features that don't exist on this fone is: ABS, air condition, some of airbags and a pair of supersport rims!!!!!! and i think if i will buy thin kind of fone i will be able to use it without user's guide??!?!?!?!
The human eye can differentiate between 10 million colors, "side by side"

Now this means that if we hold a 65K phone to a 262K phone...we should see the difference...and we do.
I uploaded a picture from my computer on to my GX20 (65K) and I could see that it wasn't as bright as my pic on the PC.
The picture was an iceberg off the coast of greenland and was thousands of shades of blue. I could tell the difference.
When you have a very high contrast in colors, like a sunset or a fading white wall (white to grey) you will see that the 65K screen displays "rings" because it doesn't have enough colors to render the background correctly.
We cannot say, oh this picture only has 65K and this one has 32-bit...not from memory (Color Phenomena). We need to compare them.
That's already it for me, cheers
Brick Design: My comment
Many of you here are convinced that this phone is a brick...
You can't compare these phones with regular GSM phones. UMTS Phones incorporate TWO technologies, WCDMA and GSM.
If you compare the 902SH (SHARP), 802SH, 802N (NEC), 802SE (Sony Ericsson) then you will see that they are all around 10 cm in size.
For a flip fone with 320 x 240 px screen resolution, up to 2MPx camera and 3G broadband technology that is NOT big.
My GX20 is only something like 5-8 mm smaller and feels really comfortable in my hand with a big enough keypad and screen to actually see what's on. But it only has half of those features.
Now we look at some regular Bar-Phones.
The Nokia phones are around 10.8 cm's in size, but their screens are smaller in resolution and the keypad....well, guess. The new 6670 or even the 7610 are a bit bigger and no one every complains about them.
So I think that too many of you compare UMTS phones with GSM phones, but it's not quite fair.
It's a bit like comparing a Diesel Motor with a regular unleaded. Different Technologies...different requirements.
So either you want UMTS and accept the size, or you just want a regular GSM...there're heaps of small ones out there (Siemens, Samsung, LG)
you talk about ugly phone? look at all the nokia's! now that's UGLY!!!!!
